In her Mallory books, mystery author
In her latest outing "Find Me" Mallory tracks a killer who's leaving victims along the legendary Route 66 highway. A caravan of cars follows it as parents of missing children learn of the bodies being found.
At 6 p.m. today, Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet, is hosting a book signing by O'Connell. But as David from the store told me by phone, don't go there unless you know....
that after her talk at 6 p.m., if you want her to sign her latest book, you'll need to buy it there. Or bring her latest book along with a receipt showing that you bought it at Murder by the Book. Armed with a book and a receipt you'll get a number for the lineup. And, she'll even sign all your earlier Mallory books for you if you'd like.
The other option is to call the store before 6 and ask them to reserve a copy in your name. You can even tell them what you'd like O'Connell to inscribe in it, if you want it personalized. -- Margaret Downing
